1825-Dated, Henry Deringer made U.S. Military Model 1817 Flintlock "Common Rifle," marked as Produced by "H. DERINGER", Philadelphia, Very Fine. The lock has many inspectors marks on the parts and is maker marked, "U.S." over "H. DERINGER" over "PHILADA". This U.S. Military Model 1817 Flintlock "Common Rifle" design is dated "1825" on the barrel tang. It has a 36", .54 caliber rifled barrel, struck with 2 "US" Proof marks on the upper breech including, "U.S." and a "P" and the date "1825" on the tang, and it remains in its original flintlock configuration. This long gun was purchased missing the lock and the owner was fortunate to locate the perfect correct antique replacement that fit perfectly. Now, it is a proper complete rifle. The lock exhibits evidence of being cleaned and draw-filed to remove pitting which also removed some of the markings. Made and finished rich brown, and all steel furniture have areas of fine salt & pepper pitting from rust (some areas have deep pitting under a deep brown age patina). The side plate is engraved "51". Its stock has an inspectors cartouche just behind the rear side lock screw, "U.S." stamped on the butt plate. The steel ram rod is an old replacement and is too short. The stock is solid with a few long stress cracks very light scratches, dings from its years of use in service and handling. A great example in good mechanical working order. A total of 13,000 Rifles were produced by Henry Deringer.
